This video interview shows Rick Nielsen talking about his Chrome Normandy guitar. At 5:48 he says, “They made it for me. I wanted it with the real Bigsby on it and it looks pretty. I may drive it out of here later.” Rocky Robert, Rick Nielsen’s Guitar Tech, also talks about the guitar at 4:53 saying, “He hasn’t used this one a whole lot.
